Celebrate the season

Q. We want our summer wedding to reflect the season throughout the styling. What colours and designs would work well for the stationery?

A. Sarah Gibbs says: Peonies, sunflowers and soft blush pink tones are perennial favourites for summer weddings. Think blush painted Perspex signage with gold vinyl detailing for an on-trend look. Vellum paper is very popular for the invitations and on-the-day stationery and passport designs are increasingly in demand, especially since travel restrictions have been lifted.

Q. We want our wedding stationery to give our guests a sneak peek of our October wedding. What would you suggest?

A. Sarah Gibbs says: Sarah says: This time of year provides plenty of scope to incorporate the season in your wedding stationery to give a flavour of your day. Using autumnal colours, natural elements and designs to reflect the season is a great way to get your guests excited for what's to come. Foliage is ideal for this and our autumn design features a leaf cut-out on texture laid card to give a high-end finish and the leaf can be adapted to any colour. Warm, burnished tones of orange red and brown are particularly popular for that special seasonal feel.

Q. We're planning to get married in October 2021 and want to celebrate the season with an autumn theme. How can we reflect this in our wedding stationery?

A. Kimberley Hooley says: Kimberley says: Colours are key for an autumnal wedding. Deep reds, burgundy and plum tones with mustard, orange and shades of brown are all great for that warm inviting feel. Including seasonal elements like illustrations of leaves, foliage and pumpkins are also ideal. I love this time of year myself and I have created an autumn-themed wedding stationery suite featuring pumpkins and falling leaves. You can pair the invitation with a range of extras such as a luxurious vellum wrap, envelope liners and wax seals for an extra special touch. Continue the theme with your on-the-day stationery including order of the day cards to match your invites, place names, table numbers, table plans, menus, order of service cards and more for a fully coordinated look. If you have a specific idea in mind you can always opt for a bespoke design service to get the wedding stationery of your dreams!
